Contact Us to Register for Support

All Telemedicine services requests and inquires can be emailed to telemedicine@cmha-yr.on.ca

If you are a registered health care provider and you would like to use one of our locations as a patient site please call 1-866-345-0183  

How the Telemedicine Program Works

Using a private two-way video conferencing system, clients and their healthcare professionals discuss symptoms and treatment just as they would if they were in the same room. Appointments are held locally and are timely.

During COVID-19, we are offering Nursing Support and OTN sites for essential appointments only.

Please note: technological requirements must be met for clients to be seen from home.
